I just recently finished reading this book and found it to be superbly written and I could hardly put it down it was so interesting. Ed Kuglers 2 year journey through the hell that was Vietnam depicts the enviroment so well that it is almost like you are there. I was very pleased with my purchase of the book, and i can honestly reccomend it to anyone who wants to know of the hardships a U.S. Marine had to face in Vietnam, especially a Marine Sniper like Ed Kugler.

I was very happy with the Dead Center account of Vietnam. It was well written and very interesting. It was such a good book I have read several other books like it but the more "famous" authors don't come close to the clarity and realism imparted in the book.

The book "Dead Center" was a very visiual and had alot of action. I suggest to anyone interested in the military or not. This book has many moments where you can't put the book down.

Kugler is an expect on his subject. He's not only "been there and done that," he has also carefully researched the topic from all perspectives. He tells it like it was, but yet maintains a sense of humor throughout his story that will make the reader smile at times while reading about a very tragic time in our history. It is a story to be shared with anyone who has been there, knows someone who has been there, is interested in accounts of war, or wants to read a contemporary account of the Vietnam experience from the perspective of a small town Ohio soldier.

I am a former Marine who was at Parris Island, Platoon 364; M Co, 3rd Bn, 6th Marines, 2nd Marine Division and in Viet Nam at the same time as Ed Kugler.
I find his writing excellent, the language and slang used by Marines authentic. It brought chills to my spine when I read this book. I was not a sniper, but I was a grunt Sgt with K Co, 3rd Bn, 7th Marines, 1st Marine division in Viet Nam from Jun 1967 to Jun 1968. I can assure you that his accounts of ambushes and routine life in Viet Nam are all too real.

I've read a lot of the various sniper books, but this was the most interesting. It moved quickly and didn't dwell on the gruesome details. The book isn't a technical description of the sniper skill set but discusses enough to get the feel for what they were into on a daily basis.
I thought it had a good balance of action, technical details, and real people feelings and I read it through in two sittings when I really didn't have time to sit and read.

This book was awesome. It motivated me more to my goal of Marine Scout-Sniper. Once you start it you cant put it back down. I wish he wrote another book.

I have read all of the books by Tom Clancy, Dale Brown, Mark Barent, Layne Heath, Steven Coonts and many others. This book by Ed Kugler is not only the best book of this type that I have read, it is TRUE. I couldn't put it down. I found myself laughing out loud at one minute and nearly in tears the next. This is a must read for anyone that appreciates history, the Vietnam experience or just a good book!

Knowing Ed, post Vietnam, it was hard to believe it was the same person. Thinking about it, he still exhibits the same cool exterior he had in the war. The book has the excitment of a novel, you just keep turning pages to see what else was going to happen. During the read, you wonder how someone can return to life, the epilogue says it all.

This is a true-life account of the development and actions of specialized US Marine Scout-Sniper units in Vietnam. Beginning in the early days of the war, we are taken through the life of one young Marine and his cohorts as they experience the perils and occasional laughter of this crazy war. Ed "Kug" Kugler shares with us his life before, during and after Nam and how it was that he became a Marine. The book comes across as truthful, without embelishment, and is written in the language of the place. Hard and raw with numerous personal insights. I learned for the first time how crucial the bureaucratic decisions from above were to the men fighting the war on the ground, and what a negative effect they had on our ability to win this war. This is a compelling and entertaining lesson on an important moment in American history.
